good food in and around bukit panjang estate

there may seem to be a dearth of good food outlets in bukit panjang housing estate but if you scout around the periphery of the estate, there are actually quite a number of eateries that attract regular customers from other parts of singapore.

a few of these are found along upper bukit timah road. they include the well-rated (by makansutra) karu's indian banana leaf restaurant, choon seng hng restaurant at the khek community guild building and chun sheng yuan, just after the linear. at this coffee shop, the dry prawn noodles is very popular, so is the chye tow kway (carrot cake).

karu's curry fishhead, tandoori chicken and nasi briyani are popular, especially with the mindef people who are just across the road at bukit gombak. the chinese restaurant at the khek community guild building offers teochew porridge in the day and cze char dishes for both lunch and dinner.

over at 10th mile junction, there is 'different taste cafe and restaurant'. this restaurant which started at the katong jackie's bowl, now has outlets at frankel avenue and downtown east. the place offers some tasty singapore dishes at affordable prices.

from the fringe, we move to the core of the estate itself. at fu yuan canshi of blk 259, there are two stalls that stand out. one is the braised duck rice and noodles and the other is the fried and bbq chicken.

the popular choo chiang roasted meat noodle house has a branch at block 445 fajar road. the roti prata at the same coffee shop is also quite popular.

for our muslim residents, there is the 'banquet' at greenridge food centre. another food court which is quite crowded in the evening is the one at block 163a, just below the multi-storey car-park.

Thanks for the recommendations. Not much information about Bukit Panjang so this is really helpful. Hope the places are still there when I go back for Chinese New Year
